The wind was blowing and it was starting to rain when I took this picture from Hanson’s Saddle in Autumn, 2009. The Fagus and Pencil Pines looked beautiful on the shore of the lake. Nothofagus Gunnii, or Deciduous Beech, is the only winter deciduous plant in Australia and is a wonderful sight in Autumn. The walk up from Dove Lake carpark is steep and rocky but only takes about forty minutes and the views from the saddle are spectacular ! …….Taken with my Nikon Coopix 5700.
